The BWW XC HD 29er wheel set employs the use of a thoughtfully designed, V-brake compatible rim, with quality sealed cartridge bearing hubs. The XC HD rim weighs 550g, has a 19mm wide inner width, has single stainless eyelets, offers both schrader and presta valve compatibility, and has a beautiful gloss black ano finish.
You have the choice to go with Shimano XT centerlock or 6 Bolt loose ball bearing, cup+cone disc hubs, or upgrade a few notches with Speed Tuned D MTB sealed cartridge bearing disc hubs, (QR and TA, Shimano and XD available).
In "stock" form, these wheels are built with DT Swiss black stainless steel 2.0mm (14g) J-bend spokes in a 32 hole, three cross configuration front and rear. These spokes are an upgrade over most "new bike" spokes. Small details make big differences with regards to spoke wire, and even though there are lighter weight spoke options available, these straight gauge spokes still feature top quality stainless, with a precise finish that allows for precise wheel building. That being said, there is a spoke upgrade option available, DT Swiss Competition Double Butted 2.0/1.8/2.0 black spokes. DT "Comp" spokes offer legendary quality and performance. Even if you didn't know a thing about spokes, if you select this option, know that your wheels would come with a super top notch spoke product. Selecting "Comp" spokes and Alloy nipples will shave off approximately 80 - 85g from the wheel set.
